09:00 – 12:00 Managing integrity and reliability of ageing assets
Are you are interested to learn how to identify key ways to improve your AIM programme
management to extend your asset life-cycle? Would you like to know more about how to
fully implement AIM throughout a large organisation? This workshop will assist attendees in
developing a strategy to manage technical and commercial risk of ageing assets.
What you will learn:
- AIM at the project phase (CAPEX vs. OPEX)
- How to roll out AIM in an organisation (who and where to pitch the concept)
- AIM to support life extension decisions
- Use of condition based monitoring in AIM
- What relevant KPI’s to measure

13:00 – 16:30 Practical workshop: Real life controlled scenarios of explosions and gas leaks
A unique opportunity where delegates will be exposed to controlled fires and explosions
to simulate real-life scenarios. This workshop will take place at the International College of
Engineering and Management and aims to tackle complacency and heighten awareness
of employees towards risk. Please note that these demonstrations have been properly risk
assessed, and that you will be experiencing those events in a controlled environment.
The practical workshop will cover the following:
BLEVE: A simulation of a “Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosion” using a 450g Propane/Butane canister that is heated in a mixture of petrol, kerosene and water. The attendees will be able to experience the release of thermal energy and can therefore upscale it according to production and operational rates of their organisations (that is usually between 100 and 140 times).
Container Gas Leak Ignition: an imitation of a gas ignition -using an electric spark- inside a container with 3m3 of butane gas. A dummy is positioned at the container opening to observe the impact of an ignition of a small quantity of gas on an individual.
Gas Spread Simulation: Using a smoke generator on a “rig platform”, you will observe the pattern of a 1.5 bar gas leak escape, how quickly gas can spread across a large area within a matter of seconds, and how potential ignition sources in the areas covered by smoke would cause an explosion.
Jet Fire: Using a 2-inch pipe, a 2.5 bar gas pressure is produced at the pipe opening, and you will be able to feel the thermal energy generated by the jet fire. Large production platforms would generate pressures equivalent to 50 times the pressure used for the simulation.
Due to the nature of this workshop spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
